    The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

    ★★★★

    The Assassination of Jesse James is the homoerotic western that is potent in every aspect, from the mournful cinematography, to the epic story, and to a nearly impeccable cast to execute director Andrew Dominik's visions. It's simply an entertaining ride that has all the ingredients to appeal to those who have zero interests in westerns in general.

    Based on the real life stories of Jesse James and his killer Robert Ford, The Assassination couldn't be further away from your typical…

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★★½

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines is such a pleasant surprise and a strong contender for next year's best animation Oscar. With its somewhat overplayed theme of rogue robots, it did the impossible by injecting brand new ideas, splendid visuals and solid, quirky gags into a 2-hour ride that's worth every minute of it. The end result is simply a blast from start to finish that's going to stick for a long time.

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines succeeds in covering…
